NIC card shows different IP address than I assigned it in Server 2003
Posted on 2004-10-01
I have a server running windows server 2003 and IIS 6.0.
I have around 40 IP addresses assigned to the NIC for the different web sites I'm hosting.
The static IP address of the nic is manually set to xxx.xx.xx.3
When I check the "support tab" of the Local Area Connection dialogue box, the box shows the following:
Address Type: Manually Configured
IP Address : xxx.xx.xx.56
My server is running a little slow, but all the web sites come up fine, and everything seems to be working, albeit a bit slower than usual. Why is there a different IP address showing up in that field, instead of the xxx.xx.xx.3 that I assigned in the TCP/IP settings?
All of the other IP addresses are added under the "Advanced TCP/IP settings".
Also, on my old 2000 server, the node type was set to "Broadcast" The nic now (same machine & hardware, new OS) is showing the node type as "unknown". Any ideas on these problems? Thanks in advance!
